Scale modes control how your content looks when the device running the game is a different size than you target at development time. See how scale modes work in this tutorial.
- [Instructor] In the iOS world,…there are many different devices,…screen sizes, and aspect ratios.…In order to be able to develop for all of them effectively,…you need to understand how sizes work…and how scaling works in SpriteKit.…So, here on my screen,…I have this scene that I'm designing,…and I'm designing it for the iPhone 4S size.…Now, granted, this is probably not the most popular size…to design for,…but it does drive home…the point I'm trying to make in this movie, so bear with me.…

So, again, my size is 4S,…
